At the 4:16 mark in the VLOG The Rudest Heckler Ever, Comedian, Michael Jr. answers the question, “What is a heckler?...A heckler is someone who is trying to shake things up in a way so you can’t handle it. A Comedian, like myself, or a performer is basically you, and you have something that you’re supposed to perform for an audience. Not just to entertain, but actually to help them get somewhere. So you are on your platform, whether you be a stay-at-home mom, a doctor – you’re on your platform presenting what you have to present to your audience. And a heckler will come along – trying to deter you from what it is you’re called to do – you’re going to have them [(hecklers)]. In fact, if you don’t have any hecklers at all, you probably doing something wrong. So a heckler is actually confirmation that you’re moving in the right direction. But you can’t listen to the heckler. You have to be aware of your situation…Sometimes that heckler is actually you. So what you have to do to knock that heckler out of the way is you got to be steadfast and know who you really are. You got to address the heckler, shut him down, and then push on.” Finished at the 5:30 mark. https://michaeljr.com/
Potential Hecklers: Pandemic; Co-worker; Employee; Employer; Fans; Family member; or maybe even yourself. As Skip often reminds me…you only have room for you up there (in my head…continue trying to influence other for the Lord, be know when and how to block out the noise around you). Can you identify your hecklers? Is it you? Maybe you’re the one heckling others…what needs to change?
How will you choose to respond to the hecklers in your life?
John 18:10 (NIV) Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.)
Matthew 26:73-75 (NLT) A little later some of the other bystanders came over to Peter and said, “You must be one of them; we can tell by your Galilean accent.” Peter swore, “A curse on me if I’m lying—I don’t know the man!” And immediately the rooster crowed. Suddenly, Jesus’ words flashed through Peter’s mind: “Before the rooster crows, you will deny three times that you even know me.” And he went away, weeping bitterly.
Matthew 4:10 (NLT) “Get out of here, Satan,” Jesus told him. “For the Scriptures say, ‘You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’”
1 Thessalonians 5:11a (NIV) Therefore encourage one another and build each other up
